For A Poet

Rating: 3.7
I have wrapped my dreams in a silken cloth,
And laid them away in a box of gold;
Where long will cling the lips of the moth,
I have wrapped my dreams in a silken cloth;
I hide no hate; I am not even wroth
Who found the earth's breath so keen and cold;
I have wrapped my dreams in a silken cloth,
And laid them away in a box of gold.

I have wrapped my dreams in a silken cloth, And laid them away in a box of gold; Where long will cling the lips of the moth, I have wrapped my dreams in a silken cloth; Wonderful imagination. tony

Do moths have lips? Honestly - or was line entirely contrived in order to rhyme with another?

Right on, John. I don't think moths have lips, either, but my BUTTERFLY OF DEATH does.
